From the old fashioned sliding metal grate elevator which fits 2 with luggage and the creaking old wood floors, it has an antique feel to it. However, our room with 2 double beds was Tight! The bathroom door couldn't open fully without hitting the bed. The floors weren't level, a bottle of water laid on its side at the window, rolled 3 feet downhill before stopping. An old armchair in the room, instead of leaving a quaint impression, left a dirty, old impression. The closet locked on the outside as if to keep things from coming out... rumors of haunting are printed on its brochure. THe mirror in the bathroom is hung so high that at 5'4" all i could see was my forehead. Food in the dining room was great, a treat even if you don't stay at the hotel. Parking is crazy. Don't park in the lot below and if you park streetside, don't do it in front of the hotel, parking vouchers won't apply there, try the side street instead.
If you don't need two doubles, go for the queen

Thank you for your recent visit, and sharing your thoughts about our hotel. We're glad you appreciated the character that comes with age. We're also proud that after 100 years, we're still here, still welcoming visitors to downtown Hood River. We offer our guests a range of room sizes (and prices), from courtyard rooms to full suites with kitchenettes and sitting areas. We would be happy to find you a bit more spacious room the next time you visit. It's always advisable when booking long distance to inquire of our reservations desk about the size of available rooms. As for parking, you're right. We have no parking facility -- our property was built before most people traveled by car -- but we do offer discounted parking passes for on-street parking. During the summer, when Hood River is Ground Zero for visitors from all parts of the world, it can be a bit of a challenge finding an available parking space close to the hotel. Once you're parked, however, you can leave your keys in your room, and walk just about anywhere downtown -- our "city center" is only six blocks long. You'll need a car to get here, but once you arrive, all you need is time to relax and enjoy all that downtown Hood River has to offer. We'll see you next time.
